  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sweet white miso
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • Cilantro leaves, for garnish

Step 1Combine water and dashi and heat to boiling. Stir in bok choy and tofu. Simmer until bok choy is tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in onions and miso. Bring just to simmer. Turn off heat and drizzle in egg. Cover and let stand a few minutes for egg to set. Spoon into 4 serving bowls and top with cilantro leaves.

Note: This is a light yet satisfying warm-up soup for cool weather. Add shrimp or chicken for a heartier version. Dashi is available at Japanese markets.
